Advanced Marine Biotechnology and Microbiolog I : Marine Microbiology in Post-Genome Era

Image Picture

A course on Advanced Marine Microbiology will be provided for discussing the future directions of Marine Microbiology studies in the post-genome era. We have invited Dr. Stefan Sievert, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

Introduction to PARE I: Population-Activities-Resources-Environments Chain 

Image Picture

This course will focus on how we monitor and improve the environmental burdens caused by human activities through the PARE chain.

Agricultural Resource Economics

Image Picture

The goals of this course are to provide knowledge of applied economics and environmental economics, and students will understand how economics is applied in the sustainable agricultural use of natural resource management. This course shares the researchers’ experience of interdisciplinary work that integrates natural and social science. Students understand the policy rational of natural resource use in terms of environmental economics.

Introduction to PARE II: Populations-Activities-Resources-Environments Chain

Image Picture

This course will focus on how we monitor and improve the environmental burdens caused by human activities through the PARE chain.

Natural Products Chemistry

Image Picture

Bioactive natural product have been an important source for drug development. The aim of this course is to understand the latest structure elucidation methods and biosynthetic studies of bioactive natural products isolated from the marine organisms, microorganisms, and terrestrial plants.

Introduction to PARE III: Populations-Activities-Resources-Environments Chain

Image Picture

This course will focus on how we monitor and improve the environmental burdens caused by human activities through the PARE chain.

Research Ethics <This course has been cancelled.>

Image Picture

<This course has been canceled due to unforeseen circumstances.>

The purpose of this class is to provide basic ideas and skills ethically to conduct research and other research-related activities. Students are expected to acquire those ideas and skills through case studies and group discussion.

Diversity in Agriculture

Image Picture

Maintenance of the biodiversity is essential for the sustainable production of food and other agricultural products and the benefits. Outcomes of cutting edge researches on conservation of biodiversity, domestication of plants and animals, exploitation of biological resources and multi-functionality in agriculture system are presented in this course.

Introduction to PARE IV: Populations-Activities-Resources-Environments Chain

Image Picture

This course will focus on how we monitor and improve the environmental burdens caused by human activities through the PARE chain.

Special Lecture of Cosmosciences 1 (Exploration of Requirement for Remote-Sensing in Asia)

Image Picture

Through invited lecturers by representatives of top universities, governmental institute or national academy in several Asian countries, introducing the latest status of the space development and the potential needs for remote-sensing in their countries.

General Plant Breeding Science

Image Picture

New breeding techniques have been developed, some of which are controversial on their safety. This class let you think how we exploit them. This class also provides lectures on useful traits of plants for breeding, and scientific writing in English.

Special Lecture of Cosmosciences 1 (Practice of optical remote-sensing)

Image Picture

Through the spectral measurement of plants in lab and natural vegetation, and its analysis, you will learn the importance of remote-sensing and how to utilize optical remote-sensing data obtained by satellite, airplane and drone.

Field Work Training I for PARE: Population-Activities-Resources-Environments Chain

Image Picture

During this two-week course, students study ecosystems of Tokachi River through fieldwork and lectures. This course will focus on how we monitor and improve the environmental burdens caused by human activities through the PARE chain.
[Note: this course is taught concurrently with “Seminar I for PARE: Population-Activities-Resources-Environments Chain”; students must enroll in both courses.]
